Vishal Bharadwaj’s plan to make Midnight’s Children for an OTT platform may have been put on hold, but for the first time, he is planning a sequel to one of his films.
Most of Vishal’s films have been based on literary works and hence have not had sequels, but this time around it is a sequel to one of his most popular films Kaminey.
“Vishal has a script idea for a film which could take the franchise ahead and it is called Maha Kaminey. He recently applied for the title with the Indian Motion Pictures Producers’ Association. Shahid played the roles of Guddu and Charlie in the original film, and he will be continuing to reprise that role in case Vishal and he decide to work together again after Shahid wraps Jersey,” says a source.
Shahid played the role of estranged twins Guddu and Charlie, one who lisps and the other who stammers. The film ended with Sweety, played by Priyanka Chopra, giving birth to Guddu’s twins. Maha Kaminey will also have the twin characters playing important characters. “The film did have an open ending with the birth of the twins and that option is now being explored. Kaminey also had some brilliant songs and the idea of a franchise has excited everyone who was in the first part,” adds our source.
